 Andre, Each type has advantages and disadvantages. Original MG’s were front engine so front engine replicas are somewhat more like the originals,but the VW based cars  are much simpler to build and maintain. Parts are still easy to come by for the VW’S.To my knowledge,FiberFab/Classic  Motor Carriage cars have the wide fenders,Classic Roadster Duchess and British Coach Works cars have regular size fenders on their front engine models. I think all rear engine cars have regular size fenders. In the end,it’s personal preference  which  you would rather have. The overall quality and condition of the car will have a lot to do with the choice as well.
